Position and motion sensor specialist POSITAL has announced that its IXARC incremental encoders will be available with a special housing that features a cable entry angled at 45° to the device’s axis. This compact design combines features of both axial and radial cable entries in a single unit, providing the installer with more flexibility when laying out the connection cable – a plus in tight spaces!
The new encoder models share the advantages of other IXARC incremental encoders. The core magnetic measurement technology is rugged and accurate, with excellent dynamic response. A wide variety of flange and shaft configurations are available, reducing the need for costly adaptors or workaround. A water and dust-tight grommet around the cable entry ensures that these devices meet IP65 level ingress protection. The housing is 36 mm in diameter and 32 mm long.
IXARC incremental encoders are programmable: resolution can be set anywhere from one to 16,384 pulses-per-turn in software without requiring any changes to the mechanical properties of the devices. Similarly, pulse direction and the output driver – either Push-Pull (HTL) or RS422 (TTL) – can be defined through software parameters. Changes can be made quickly in the field or in the shop using POSITAL’s easy-to-use UBIFAST programming tool.
POSITAL makes it easy for customers to find the right IXARC incremental encoder for their specific application. The product finder tool at www.posital.com enables a customer to specify the product features required for their project and quickly zero in on the most suitable products.
